Stock futures rose following the market’s worst session in weeks as NATO discusses ways to add further pressure to Russia — and more in Thursday’s stock market recap.

President Joe Biden joined other world leaders in Brussels, Belgium, on Thursday for several emergency meetings regarding Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Biden is scheduled to visit Poland on Friday to address the growing Ukrainian refugee crisis as Eastern European NATO countries seek clarity regarding how they and the U.S. can assist.

There’s a right way and a wrong way to trade this volatility.
The secret to finding winning trades right now is all in what I call the “Super Stocks.”
That’s why I went live again to break down a strategy that will help investors take a more systematic approach to trading.
I’m also giving out my new e-book so they can better understand all the information I shared.
In it, I talk about the No. 1 mistake traders make that allows Wall Street algorithms to rob them blind. I also reverse engineer the algorithmic system I use in the strategy to show everyone exactly how it works.
P.P.S. When it comes to trading, every second counts. And in choppy markets like these, often driven by headlines, stocks can make big moves in a flash.
That’s why I want you to get my latest trading ideas and market updates as fast as possible. So I’m rolling out an all-new option for my students to receive trade alerts with Telegram!
Telegram allows me to get trade ideas, videos and watchlists to you in a matter of seconds.

Each Thursday, I’ll combine two of my favorite things into a big-money opportunity: options plays and ETFs. Using options, we can turn momentum analysis of a specific sector — or even an entire country’s stock market — into an actionable trade with double- or triple-digit upside potential. I’ll give you all the details you need to execute this plan.
